Second Grade

Here is my card for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge... the theme this week is: "Soft Furnishings" (must say... i had a bit trouble understanding what to use lol) english is so different than the US english.. so i went with the ribbons cause i do not have any fabrics at home. I just checked the Challenge blog and there is more info what you can use on your card.
The school chalk board was first colored with grey copics and than i embossed with white detail embossing powder "2 nd" (Stampin up set) "grade" is die cut from CS using Cuttlebug Alphabet Die. I really like this card especially since it is a boy card without using any flowers (my personal challenge :-) Oh.. all the elements are added to Bazzill Bling CS... love these at the moment very much and i think in this case it looks kind of like a wall .. just looks nice with the texture and the shimmer.
Sentiment: In my thoughts (congratulations), 2 nd (i need to check on this set)
DP: K& Company, SU Night of Navy
Embellishments: Hodgepodge, Epoxy sticker, SU ribbons
Tools: Word window puch and Cuttlebug Alphabet dies

I got yesterday 2 (yippeeeee) awards from Kelly (my daily dose blog :-) und a german blogging friend Ninchen! Thanks to both of you. I would like to mention now much i enjoy reading Heathers blog and Tienekes blog... (dont get me wrong.. no award... i just like their blogs!) maybe you want to check it out?

Have you seen my sketch i added yesterday to my posting???? I really would love to see what you create... maybe you can combine it with the Cute Card Thursday Challenge??? if not.. come and see what Murielle has made for the Friday Sketchers! Murielle's sketches are FABULOUS... i used this sketch already 2x and it is awesome !
